In a brief moment today, XRP, the controversial digital asset associated with Ripple, surpassed Binance Coin (BNB) in terms of market capitalization. Recent data shows that XRP’s market cap reached approximately $36.09 billion, trailing BNB by a narrow margin of $36.13 billion.
XRP’s ability to adapt and demonstrate resilience has set it apart from cryptocurrency giants like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), which have often dominated the market. With regulatory clarity backing the token, it is now likely that XRP will reclaim its fourth place on CoinMarketCap.
Stuart Alderoty, Chief Legal Officer at Ripple, recently affirmed XRP’s exceptional position in the United States, resulting from its non-security classification following a court ruling. This legal distinction distinguishes XRP from the majority of other digital tokens and can serve as a driving force in its market performance.
Meanwhile, Binance, the cryptocurrency giant behind BNB, faces its own regulatory obstacles, which have impacted BNB’s market standing and opened doors for competitors like XRP.
Following Changpeng Zhao’s resignation amidst allegations from the US Department of Justice, doubts have arisen regarding BNB’s ability to maintain its top positions and alleged decentralization. However, CZ recently emphasized that BNB does not require a CEO and continues to operate smoothly.
